Based in Greensboro North Carolina, Michiel Van der Sommen, a fine sculptor with an extraordinary career, including flying helicopters in Alaska and building his own plane, plans to visit Ireland this year. He was last in Dublin 2003 when he gave a talk on sculpture at Dublin's Central Library.
Michiel also met and spoke with Irish sculptors in their workshops here in Dublin.
An example of his work appeared in The Irish Times, magazine, back then.
Please take a look at the video and enjoy the beautiful Beethoven music too.
